What a barn, it has a very cinematic feel to me with the fog so that's the route I took. A touch of colour grading and desaturation trying to emphasise the mood, then a suitably cinema like crop.

Sorry, I am a little late getting this challenge closed.

This image naturally lends itself to a black and white process. That is what I did with it as well.

photocles - I really like your choice for a crop, contrast and sharpening for the image detail.

graeme83 - You choice a crop that gives a panoramic feel to the image and by retaining very subdued color have indeed captured the mood.

JHfwp - You have the brightest entry which really emphasizes the fog. I like that you removed the fence post behind the tire swing to make the tire swing more evident.

tuggie76 - You obviously have the most time and money invested in your processing! I am amazed you could even get that barn cleaned out in a week and then with all of the repairs and purchase of equipment, you must be exhausted!

AggieDad - You brought color to a gloomy day!

noelcnm - You are brave! You decided to take an x-ray of that old barn, but I'm not sure I really want to know what is in there.

todd - Good use of contrast and sharpening.

Nessie - A bright image empasizing the haziness of the day.

I want to thank each of you that contributed and continue to support this challenge. It is never easy for me to select a host for the next challenge as each image has its own attributes, but I must, so here we go.

Runners Up - JHfwp, tuggie76, AggieDad, noelcmn & Nessie

3rd Choice - todd

2nd Choice - graeme83

The host for #289 will be..................................photocles!
